YOSH TODAY'S REVIEW IS BARAKAMON!!!
I really like this anime ahaha and it's been a long time since I've watched anything and this is a great series to start out with if you're beginning to get into anime again. Barakamon is about calligraphy one of the most well known arts in Japan and China and is highly regarded occupation in Asia~ Only masters can write such beautiful characters!!
So a well known calligrapher, Seishu Handa moves to Goto Islands, a remote island in Japan. The reason: He punched a old curator who criticize his work as 'boring' and 'unoriginal' and as a sort of 'cool down' his farther had asked him to move to the islands and relax a little.
The insane humor on this series is pretty heartwarming as well. Due to being a city boy, Handa doesn't know much about the simple country life and how backwards it can get sometimes i.e. he doesn't know how to use a turn dial phone and is afraid of touching insects.
When he first moved it he was pretty cold and annoyed at Naru (who had scared him on their first meeting) and how everyone seemed to treat his home like their own but he soon realizes that it's not all that bad living in the country with the warmth he's immersed in.
As the series moves on you'll see more new characters and how Handa-sensei grows not only as a calligrapher but as well as man. He learns to care for others -mainly the kids that pester him- and how to have fun. He gets inspired and cultivates his own style of calligraphy instead of sticking to the fundamentals.
All in all it's a warm anime with cute kids. Watching this on a sad day will definitely cheer you up!!
As this is this Summer Season's anime, it's not complete and is still on-going (the manga is the same, but it's worth reading)
I hope you'll pick up the cheer from this anime~
